compassion of the poor we reviewed your case and in koran education is inor encouraged for all children. it encourages all people to have knowledge and seek knowledge. well, um... with that letter, started getting dozens of proposals especially for girls schools. why is girls education so important? i've gone to the extent now where i say you can drop bombs and build roads or put in electricity but until the girls are implicated, society won't change. several global studies show if you educate a girl to fifth grade level it does three things. reduce infant mortality, population explosion reduction and improve the quality of life and health. if your interested you can look up a guy called, well he wrote a book called development is freedom. it's a fat book. in the 60's another writer had the very foresite to see that girls education would be a process to bring about stabilization of population. he wrote a book called the poverty curve and jeffery sacks wrote the end of poverty in bangladesh a great example, they introduced 35 years ago to do a campaign to get all women and men or boys li
fighting terrorism with education i've learned from islamic scholars. in the koran it's implicitly stated in the holy koran when a young mangos on jiha d and this is a spiritual endeavor to seek knowledge. it could also mean he's going into a group. but he has to get blessings from his mother first and if he doesn't do that it's shameful and disgraceful. after 911 the taliban had a high desertion rate and they were trying to get recruit groups to fight against intervention and coalition and they went in literally impoverished societies because educated women refused to allow they're sons to fight in theal bonn. you have a less educated mother here. single parent in the difficult system. the higher education a women has the more likely her son is to go on with education rather than getting into violence and drugs and certainly she won't condone her son getting into a gang or drugs. i've sometimes been criticized for that because they say all the 911 hijackers were educated and had university degrees and that certainly is true. but nobody botherd to check they're mothers and nearly

are currently reading the koran than the bible. the number of christians in europe has been rapidly declining. the protestant church says today it attracts fewer and fewer people, resulting in an empty church pews in many places, but what do you do when a church building is no longer needed? do you tear it down or give it a new purpose? some disused churches becomes hotels or restaurants, but there are limits to the new uses that church authorities are willing to accept. in germany, for instance, representatives of the catholic and protestant churches have officially recommended not to turn churches into mosques. one village in france has discovered that this can certainly be a delicate issue. >> there's a small catholic community in the heart of france that has too little money and too many churches. the church of the holy virgin is located in historic town center. a few hundred meters away stands the church of st. john the baptist. a few blocks away, we find st. john's a listing where there has been no resident church for ages. and then there's the church of saint aloysius. >> we have six c
a report saying koran has been confirmed here in havana. this is the biggest outbreak of the disease in decades and officials are tracing the outbreak to someone in july in the east of the country when there was an earlier outbreak. according to the report, officials say this outbreak is in its expansion phase. they say they have it under control. they are urging people here in havana and elsewhere to be meticulous with hygiene, to wash their hands very well, eat well cooked vegetables, and make sure they are not contaminating themselves or others through any non hygienic practices. >> hugo chavez is recording -- responding to medical treatment, according to his deputy. the annual state of the nation speech was delivered. it warned the opposition will not let the government take advantage of his absence. >> would say that our commander is overcoming the challenge. he is making progress. that fills us with great joy, not only as human beings, but as patriots. >> i cannot allow anyone, no matter his or her name, to set this country on fire. we will not permitted, whoever it is, by what

tombstones inscribed with koranic verse is. most are regarded as heretics because they believe there was a profit after muhammad. many frown on muslim prayers and epitaphs. the spokesman did not want to show his face because he feared he would be punished for speaking out. he told me the attack did not come as a complete surprise. >> they wanted us to remove all the islamic text which had been written on the tombstones. >> the discriminant -- the discrimination faced by them is unsurprising because in many ways it is mandated by the state. in 1974, pakistan was first elected prime minister introduce a constitutional amendment which the clear them on muslims. that means they are prohibited by law by making the call to prayer. -- which declared them muslims. the professor is a prominent islamic scholar. he does not think the graveyard should have been attacked, but he did not condemn the attackers either. >> no one should take the law into their own hands, but what these people did was wrong. , the should not have put inscriptions' on their tombstones. >> sometimes the discrimina
few years from the ground zero mosque to the koran burning, local and national campaigns against building mosques, all of these are obviously going to impact children and their parents and if they are at home hearing their parents talk about muslims in a certain way, they are going to take that to school with them. i have experienced this in my own growing up, which was long before 9-11, just the lack of information or the misinformation i experienced again with my own children, particularly when there's an event that happens overseas they will come to school and kids will reflect that in comments about did your parents commit another terrorist act, was that your dad that did this. it's common for kids to be called bin laden, daughter of saddam. a lot of times events overseas will have a huge impact on the kind of words children experience and unfortunately that bias is not limited just to students. there are cases where the teachers themselves have a lot of bias. there was an article published a couple years ago called suffer the little muslims where teachers, who are just hum
sensorship, all of you. [laughter] schooling, anything at all to do with anything outside the koran it is very easy to mobilize the -- the youth, who sit at the feet in the madrassas, a school, and who believes life begins and ends on the instructions of the mula, the cleric in charge. the politics became complicated because of what the british did. they were not just satisfied of grading the sanction among the believers. that was not enough. there had to be division in the country. when the british left, before they left, they created surrogates, and, actually, the appointed surrogates closest to their own pliable or at least already practicing a kind of structure, feudalism which is close to what the british of its practices at the time until late into the 20th century, and so they not only falsified the elections that followed, that proceeded independence. they falsified even the senseless. now, this was in custody, if you check the notes of the so-called home office which is where the colonies of the british are administered, they look for the book of harold smith, a civil serva
and so there was some controversy. he ended up using a koran that was owned by thomas jefferson, which helped dampen some of that controversy. >> is this the most religiously diverse congress there's ever been? >> it is considered the most diverse congress ever. that sort of reflects the changes in american society. although congress hasn't kept up with all the changes exactly in american society. think about protestants. congress is still majority protestant, about 56%. >> but protestants went -- the number of protestants went down a little bit, the number of catholics went up. >> exactly, but for the first time ever protestants are less than half of the country, but they still make up most of congress. catholics went up this time around as well so they make up about 30% of congress. >> what about people who say they have no religion? >> they're the most unrepresented group right now in terms of religion in congress. about 20% of the country says they have no religious affiliation. we did have one atheist member of congress a few years ago. pete stark was the first person to say i'm a
facilitated the distribution of korans because this is an islamic country. initially we focused on brick and morter construction, renovation, after about a generation of violence you can beat these schools were destroyed. if we needed to build new ones, we certainly did, but we always made sure the afghans understood they had the ultimate responsibility of maintaining this once we leave. finally, girls in school. as i mentioned, literacy rate was 20 percent. that was country-wide. in southwest afghanistan that literacy rate was women was 8 percent. so you have to work very hard to get an 8 percent literacy rate for women, which means you actually have to stop and implement policies to make sure that women actually couldn't partake in any learning, any health systems, anything that would contribute to their growth. so girls in school, big focus area. we wanted to reverse the effects of the state of women and girls in afghanistan. so once the security foot hold was gained in southwest afghanistan by the marines in 2010 and 2011 and they continued to conduct operations as i'm speakin
and they say that's christianity. so, you know, the idiotic minister who wants to burn the koran, you know, and they say that's what christianity looks like. these are intelligent writers who should know better. other people get angry because they're sort of like how dare you make a positive case for what youe doing? and that's the sloppy thinking where you are "shoving it down my throat." you can make an intelligent argument about why religious community matters without saying the other person's going to burn in hell. >> daniel wishes every critic would learn more about the church they're criticizing. >> it's like we have this amnesia, like, really, nobody in past generations studied this stuff and put some thought into it and it might be worth reading? oh no, it's just i can kind of get it on my own. and there's this sort of almost worshipf our own feingsnd not much respect for traditions and experience and wisdom from outside ourselves. >> daniel says it's normal for some people, especially the young, to turn their backs on religion for a while. >> what i think is sad is when people kin
of this decision was argued last week. neil: it is akin to tearing up a koran? >> that is the argument that government made, they were so adamant about if they did not want to judge to see the photos in the privacy of his chambers so he could make a informed decision, the judge went along with that, rejecting the application of judicial watch, based on what the government told him. neil: has he seen them. >> no but he did receive affidavits from people in the cia who claim they saw them, and describes when they saw. neil: would this be confirming a policy of don't share, don't show? >> a policy contrary to principles of first amendment. neil: are. things, force ibly open. -- remember there were kennedy photos, they did not show them, and then they well leak out. >> they do, sometimes the government punishes leakers or awars leakers, i think these will come out but probably when it is no longer a hot issue like today, i think there is a probability that's the appellate court will reverse the trial judge below, and say to him, look at these pictures, and then decide. you should have a bi

"so help me god" is another issue. i do not think there is anything wrong with the president saying it. the question is, why is the chief justice reading something that is not in the constitution. >> good morning. i attend miami-dade college. what has led you to be an oral historian, and what is your favorite part about being one? >> unlike political history. oral history -- unlike political history. oral history is something that i stumbled into. -- i like political history. oral history is something that i stumbled into. the person i was writing about talking to me, telling me in the first person about his childhood and life -- he left out any mention of his family. he did not mention his children. he did not mention the income- tax case decided to jail. he talked about his glory days -- that sent him to jail. he talked about his glory days. : out and started interviewing his widow, his children, his love partners, the person who prosecuted him. i got an interview with his psychiatrist.
it it that way. >> sean: we know that the koran is interpreted by radicals mean and talk about infidels, jihad, holy war. >> he seems to be in denial of the fact that these people are organized, they're at war against us, they want to kill us, they want to destroy us and they have done it. they've actually killed us and are continuing to kill snus and chuck hagel, the same thing. if it wasn't so scary, and so dangerous, we've got chuck hagel going to be the new defense secretary. chuck hagel could not identify hezbollah, hamas or the iranian national guard as terrorists, he also has said, sanctions don't work, all president obama told us all during the campaign was how terrific the sanctions worked and then also told us we shouldn't attack iran. explain to me how you're going to stop them from becoming a nuclear power if you don't use sanctions and take the idea of a possible military attack off the table and what kind of signal sending to iran to select somebody who believes that. basically president obama is signaling them, i don't really believe in the sanctions that much and don't worry we
trainer must take an oath on the koran. to make sure there's no cheating. there's a strict scoring system in place that awards points. the head is 25 points. the front 15. the back 10. the hump 25. still not convinced? maybe the prize money will sway you. up for grabs was about $12 million. 100 luxury automobiles. before you laugh off this beauty contest you might want to think about it.

've been other strains from koran burnings by american soldiers to deadly insider attacks by afghan soldiers. for now, the u.s. still has 66,000 troops in afghanistan, but it's moving toward withdrawing all combat forces by the end of 2014. general john allen, the commander of u.s. and nato forces in afghanistan, has laid out a range of troop level options to president obama, from as high as 20,000 to as low as 6,000, to stay on to train afghan soldiers and fight al qaeda. white house officials are said to favor fewer troops. this week, deputy national security adviser ben rhodes even suggested it's possible that no americans will stay. the president declined to name a number today. >> i'm still getting recommendations from the pentagon and our commanders on the ground in terms of what that would look like. and when we have more information about that, i will be describing that to the american people. >> woodruff: in november, the u.s. and afghanistan started negotiations on a so-called "bilateral security agreement" to govern any future american military role. u.s. officials have i
will take diplomacy very seriously. or that sanctions really change the koran and governments mind and they change course -- the iranian government's mind and they change course. it is quite likely and possible that iran may go nuclear before any of these things take effect. before sanctions, as rigorous as they are, produce a result, or before there is a democracy movement. then, we are really left with two choices. we either find a way to contain and share a nuclear iran, or we go to war with it. if we go to war, then we have to be prepared for what that war would entail. it may very well be far more costly and far more destabilizing to the region than the wars in iraq and afghanistan war. the shiite sunni war with our doing. it is another war that is equally intolerable. thank you. [applause] >> charles krauthammer, you have three minutes on the clock and the final word. >> so little time. i would address two points. yes, i believe in every word i wrote about deterrence in 1984, dealing with the us and the soviet union, and it remains true today. but the idea that some technique
